Details: The brick trade at the Adamstown yards is brisk at present and all are working regularly. At the large steam brickworks recently purchased by Messrs. T. and W. Cowan, builders and contractors from Mr. T. Cottrell, work is proceeding at high pressure to meet the orders in hand and the daily output averages between 10,000 and 15,000. Everything has worked smoothly with the new proprietors and each kiln of bricks burnt has given satisfaction. The proprietors have installed new pumping machinery and enlarged the loft over the dry press machine. It is capable of holding material sufficient for making 15,000 bricks. It was originally intended to construct a patent kiln, but that idea has been abandoned and it has now been decided to erect an ordinary kiln capable of holding 60,000 bricks. At present 23 men employed on the works. Realising the improtance of the brick works to the municipality the council will as soon as funds permit complete the Wood street route to the works. That will give a convenient outlet in all weathers for the brick carts

Item: 173895
Surname: Buxton (industry)
First Name: Thomas
Ship: -
Date: 28 April 1902
Place: Newcastle
Source: NMH
Details: Mr. Thomas Buxton senior was one of the earlier residents in Newcastle. Years ago when the Rev. Threlkeld was mining for coal at Lake Macquarie, Mr. Buxton had a sawpit in that locaility and married his wife from the rev. gentlemans house. He continued the sawpit for a considerable time and later started a shop in the city, somewhere about the site of the shop now occupied by Abel and Co. This business was attended to by Mrs. Buxton whose maiden name was Mary Timmins. As the business increased the sawpit was given up and a much larger establishment occupied on the site now occupied by Sorby and Co and afterwards known as the Steam Packet Hotel. Here business flourished and Mr. Buxton rapidly accumulated money and property, acquiring the whole block from the Steam Packet Inn to the Centennial Hotel and the whole of the land from the corner where the Crystal Palace Hotel now stands to Alderman Millers shop. In many respects he was a quaint man and one of his characteristics was a passion for gold. Sovereigns were none too plentiful in the old days and the story is tole that he would give twenty one shillings at any time for a sovereign. If so, it was probably done because sovereigns were more easily stored than paper money. There were no banks in Newcastle at the time, and it is said that many of the old residents were in the habit of entrusting their money to his keeping each account being kept separate, and the money placed in a jar bearing the customers name and deposited upon shelves in a specially prepared room
